Obama; Buck Up, While Buck Down

By Tom Tillison

In an AP report, while admonishing his own party, President Barack Obama says it would be “inexcusable” and “irresponsible” for unenthusiastic Democratic voters to sit out the midterm elections, warning that the consequences could be a squandered agenda for years.

“People need to shake off this lethargy. People need to buck up,” Obama told Rolling Stone in an interview to be published Friday. The president told Democrats that making change happen is hard and “if people now want to take their ball and go home, that tells me folks weren’t serious in the first place.”

The midterm elections are in five weeks and polling shows that Republicans, out of power at the White House and on Capitol Hill, have a much more excited base of supporters than Democrats. Obama, campaigning this week in four states, is in a sprint to restore the voter passion that helped him win office.

Not to be outdone, V.P. Joe Biden, parroting the company line, had this to say on MSNBC, “And so those who don’t get — didn’t get everything they wanted, it’s time to just buck up here, understand that we can make things better, continue to move forward and — but not yield the playing field to those folks who are against everything that we stand for in terms of the initiatives we put forward.”

Ironically, while Obama rolls out his ‘Buck Up’ campaign, the real buck, the U.S. dollar, is down, trading at almost a five- month low against the euro due to home prices rising at a slower pace in July, fueling speculation the Federal Reserve will ease monetary policy.
